About this property

  • This Grade II listed stone built thatched cottage is presented to the market for the first time since 1976. It presents a wonderful opportunity to sympathetically refurbish a historic property on a prominent corner site.

    The property retains a host or period features including chamfered beams, an inglenook fireplace and flagstone floors.

    Generous living accommodation includes a reception hall, sitting room, two further reception rooms, a workshop and garden room. The kitchen is located at the rear of the house and forms part of a series of Victorian additions which also include a ground floor bathroom and adjacent utility room.

    There are six bedrooms located on the first floor, as well as a generous family bathroom and separate w.c. Two of the bedrooms currently provide living accommodation in the form of a first floor sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with free standing units.

    There are stairs from the landing that lead to a good size attic space for storage.

    The cottage enjoys a generous, mature plot which features an expanse of lawn to the rear and a ‘wild' garden to the side of the property which attracts a variety of wildlife. There are deep borders planted with trees, shrubs and bulbs that provide year round interest. At the front of the house there is off-street parking for a number of vehicles.
